Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #44 (Sep 2010):

Brilliantly clear golden color with a creamy white head. Hints of cherry, white chocolate and rose water in the nose ... seems the alcohol wants to take over even in a subtle manner. Creamy body with a struggling crispness. Maltiness is pretty sweet with some vague fruit and buttery flavors. Warmth from the alcohol is of a clean solvent and peppery likeness. More malt sweetness in the end, though the beer does move forward. Surprisingly good, and for its hefty strength, it does not stray too far. The name says it all ... this would be good with a fresh lobster and drawn butter.

Fist off, I've played a lot of shows around the Cleveland, Ohio area. I get drink tickets and like to try new beers each time. I came across Lobster at my local Rieders here in concord Ohio. It was very cheap for $1.99 us, 9.5%. I have been hooked since only need a couple of these to last all night long.

Yes, I've heard the taste is strong or miserable, tastes like toilet water, bottle drained,for others online. I have to beg the differ. I tell people about lobster lovers all the time, give it away to friends, ect,.

It recently has risen in price to $2.49. (1pt .09oz) I'm hooked and will gladly pay it.

If this is considered an "ok" as far as taste to price for European standards, I'd like to try a better!

Smells boozy and musty. Tastes the same, with hints of bread and banana, typical for the yeasts used in the Baltic states. I started drinking it too cold, but the second half of the bomber was poured into a room temperature glass and was quite a bit better. Thick full mouthfeel, feels like a triple. I wasn't sure what to expect from a beer with a huge lobster on the label, but my expectations were not high. Overall a decent beer but not one I'd choose again.

Lobster Lovers Beer has a thick, foamy, yellowish-white head, lots of thick lacing, an enormous amount of bubbles, and a hazy, orange-gold appearance. The aroma is very strong and bracing- one gets super-sweet, alcohilic barley malt and candi sugar. Taste is of sickly-sweet barley malt, melted hard candy, alcohol, barley malt, and bread. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Lobster Lovers Beer finishes sweet, harsh, and minimally drinkable. But, even with all the harshness and the jarring experience, it is a good one, and I score it excellent.
